Half Life 2: Orange Box (PS3) - £9.93 @ The Hut

Next best £11.99 at Choices - then £13 at Amazon

A combination of 5 games in one box, players are presented with 3 Half-life titles, the first person puzzle game Portal and the multiplayer first person shooter Team Fortress 2.

Giving players 5 games to pick from will leave them spoilt for choice. The sci-fi first person shooters included in The Orange Box are Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two. These titles are played through the eyes of Gordon Freeman as he fights alongside rebels against aliens that have conquered Earth. If players wish to exercise their puzzle solving skills they can play Portal, in which they are placed in a number of increasingly complex rooms and told to reach the exit by creating teleportation portals on walls, ceilings and floors.

Lastly there is the online multiplayer sensation Team Fortress 2, in which players must work together combining tactics and fast reactions to beat the opposition. Players can exercise the freedom of being able to swap from a puzzle game to an online first person shooter all without ever having to change the disc.

The Orange Box is an ideal purchase for somebody who wants to experiment with a number of different style games and does not wish to compromise on quality when doing so.

The Orange Box delivers five innovative action games from Valve - creators of the blockbuster Half Life videogame, in one box.

Available for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, The Orange Box includes Half Life 2: Episode Two, PortalTM and Team Fortress 2 in addition to full versions of award-winning Half Life 2 and Half Life 2: Episode One for an engrossing first-person action experience.

All new games in The Orange Box are:

Half Life 2: Episode Two - the second chapter in Valve’s award-winning trilogy, taking gamers beyond the walls of City 17 for the first time.

Portal - A groundbreaking new kind of action game that will forever change the way gamers interact with their environment, much like Half Life 2’s gravity gun rewrote the rules for how gamers manipulate in-game objects and use physics.

Team Fortress 2 - The long-awaited return of the legendary king of role-based online multiplayer games, Team Fortress 2 pushes the Source Engine to new heights with a daring new art style and deep multiplayer gameplay for nine distinct roles.

5 Games, One Box

The Orange Box is the ultimate collection of innovative action games for the PC or console, and an amazing introduction to the Half Life series for console gamers.

Epic Storyline

Half Life 2: Episode Two takes gamers deeper into one of the best-known stories in gaming, following the desperate struggle of Gordon Freeman against the mysterious Combine. In this episode, gamers will leave the confines of City 17 for the first time.

Redefining Action

Portal delivers an innovative new action gaming experience. Arming players with a portal gun allowing them to create portals from one location to another with the press of a button, Portal will forever change the way that gamers interact with their environment.

World-Class Multiplayer*

Team Fortress 2 is the sequel to granddaddy of role-based multiplayer action games. Featuring nine distinct roles - Heavy, Spy, Scout, Demoman, Engineer, Medic, Sniper, Soldier and Pyro - Team Fortress 2 is one of this year’s most anticipated multiplayer games for any platform.

* Internet connection required for online play.

A combination of 5 games in one box, players are presented with 3 Half-life titles, the first person puzzle game Portal and the multiplayer first person shooter Team Fortress 2.

Everyone should own this!

Would love to buy this, but have always been wary of if many people play team fortress 2 online anymore, anybody have any idea?
#4
Don't bother with this version, get it for the PC instead. The PS3 one is crippled as it was done by EA, not by Valve and the CEO is ex-Microsoft and hates anything to do with the PS3.

Fantastic, one word of warning though, the PS3 edition doesn't have trophies sadly. If this is your kind of thing and you own both a 360 and a PS3 then the 360 edition is a must as it has achievement points.

Worth owning, but it is nothing on the PC version.

All very well and good, but not everyone owns a decent PC rig, a fair number of people only have laptops or netbooks which would struggle to run it.

The PS3 port isn't unplayable, just the worst port with framerate drops.

Yes, PC gaming market grew 19% last year. More growth than consoles...........

Heard that TF2 for ps3 and xbox is rife with loop holes, glitches and bugs. Which is mainly why people cant play it.
The PC one has constant patches, updates, new items like weapons and has a huge online community.
In short PC > Console.
(for TF2 at least)

I got fed up with lack of variety with PC games, very little outside the realm of FPS and Real Time Strategy games.

Only 20 years worth of back catalogue and the games you mentioned......plus, let's see....

Oblivion 5
Diablo 3
Mass Effect 3
GTA 5
Hitman 5
Max Payne 3
Total War Shogun 2

I could go on but you get the picture.

I may be wrong but because portal 2 will bring steam to the ps3 team fortress may be playable cross platform like portal 2 co-op 8) Hot either way!

Steam is not coming to the PS3, they're merely integrating certain features of Steam into the PS3 version of Portal 2. It won't have any retrospective effect on older games such as this.

My 10-yr old plays it all the time - there's always loads of people playing it online.

Correction. He used to hate anything to do with the PS3. But now he loves it. In a way, everyone else was the same. Up until end of 2098, the PS3 didn't really have that many good games.

I'd say that's a bonus. Playing a game without the shackles of some stupid pat on the back points system and playing it for its inherent merits alone. Wonderful.

I guess it all depends on the game, without the trophies in something like LBP 2 there would be less of an incentive to revisit the story mode and 100% Ace and collect all the stickers etc.

With games like FPS it is good for headshot trophies etc, getting through sections of game unscathed etc, just a way of adding a bit more longevity out of a game.

The achievements in HL2 worked well in the 360 version

And me :D

Plenty of people still play on-line, and it's worth buying just for TF2!

Are you one of those people who say "I can't see any difference between a DVD and Blu-ray?"
